UPS Shipping error


Recommended Posts

Help - my website is unable to give shipping costs since approx 2 days



the error customers see is as follows

Warning: fsockopen(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in /hsphere/local/home/mshisha/britishhomemarket.com/includes/classes/http_client.php on line 330


Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to production.shippingapis.com:80 in /hsphere/local/home/mshisha/britishhomemarket.com/includes/classes/http_client.php on line 330




I had UPS and USPS shipping offered and it was showing the error but also showing rates for USPS. When I disabled UPS it shows this error for USPS.

I havent changed this file at all.

Cant understand the problem - can anyone help?

Cant understand the problem

From the url in the error message this is a problem with the USPS module, not UPS (actually with the class http-client). There are about 119,000 results in Google for that fsockopen error. Has to do with resolving the name to an IP-address. There does not seem to be a general solution to it. Some have results with this, others with that.
